These small, dense orbs from Rancho Gordo produce a beefy bean broth.  An essential part of California cuisine, they are the heart of a tri-tip barbecue and yet they're perfectly at home in meatless meals.  Santa Maria Pinquitos have a superior pot liquor and stay somewhat firm.  Ideal for chili, barbecues, or for borrachos (or drunken beans).  Don't forget them for salads!

This lovable heirloom is loaded with California history.  Most of us thought the Santa Maria "Pinks" were brought in with the migrant citrus workers of the 1950s (who also introduced us to the tri-tip) but now there's some thought that it was a crop during the Mission era. Whatever its origins, it's delicious and meaty and the perfect match for any barbecue, chili or even salad.
